Not bad Marc, not bad at all  Grin

Much though hate to admit the roof does look better, and you ambivalence to the model will disappear after you have been away from it for a few weeks.

The framing you put on the inside of the bed has worked really well and I just like the overall subtlety of the rust and wear, something I must keep in mind

Some nice value-adding work to that seven dollar model. I will be happy to achieve your level of so-so ness. The fading is great.

I like it Marc.   Nice job.   One thing that caught my eye was that you have the front wheel turned...Nice... So many people display their vehicles with all wheels in line, not at all natural, very model looking.

Very very nice indeed Marc. Having misspent my youth looking at rusted out Vespas and Apes this build really took me back! A little Honda 90 would make a nice companion.

It's one of the cutest little builds ever done here!   Grin

Finishes are outstanding ... and very inspiring.

Cheers,
Dallas

Thanks Dallas. (Sorry for the belated response)

An amusing pic from the Heiden show. Apparently someone was having some fun with the display models....and none of us noticed till we were packing up on the last night. Couldn't resist a quick snappie.

Marc-

Any chance the sbs made it into a printed article? I know you were mentioning something. Also its really sad that so many of you're posted photos are missing.

All the best.

Michael,

An SBS article was done and sent to ModelFan magazine in Germany....what they did with it, I have no idea. Don't know where the photos went from here...may have been on my old site or such, and gotten moved/deleted. It's an old build. Smiley

Currently all the photos are on my FB page in order of the SBS...but without text....but they are pretty self explanatory. I think the album setting is set to "friends of friends" so if you are linked with anyone that I am "friends" with, you should be able to see it.
